4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the brewery: hay stack orange with a slight haze, wet chewy hop aroma. . . Very natural aroma, remenisent of west coast hops, but with a new twist for me - a barnyard twist to hops. . . Flavour is piney, and though sticky somehow clean. Palate has avery nice texture and perfect carbonation. A bit of wet cardboard in a finish which actually adds /balances the bitter hops nicely. A wonderful beer in an even better atmosphere - hop vines everywhere, huge brass brew kettles and old half liter bottles. . .

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A cloudy golden body with a huge, white head that left a thick layer of lacing down the glass. Sweet and dry malt aroma. Not too unlike the oyster crackers I just ate. Some floral hops in the nose as well. Nice, crisp bitterness. Dry and spicy. A bit fruity while maintaining the dryness. My first "real" Bohemian Pilsener. Many thanks to my intercontinental distributor and importer, iwantalambic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Draught at the brewpub: Hazy orange coloured. Huge white head. Long lasting. Fruits and flowers in the nose. The flavour is hoppy and fruity. There is notes of elderflower I think. Very pleasant. Has a smooth mouthfeel that ends up with a hard bitter dry finish.

Hazy body, virtually no head. Dry texture. Light bitter with an average duration. Herbal feel. Pleasant indeed!
